    Bit of a surprise, this. I quite like it.

    It's a bit shonky at the moment, but it feels a bit like what Tabula Rasa could have been like if they'd done it right.

    What won me over and I was pretty gobsmacked by it.A major event was taking place with 5 enemy crystal spawners spewing out hellbugs in a large area.There was two of us battling one. We were not making much of a dent on the spawner,while also fighting off bugs,and flying hellbugs that could slow you,with what looked like big rubber balls on your feet.

    I was starting to think how the hell can we,then 10 players roared in with their vehicles,running over bugs then jumping out to take out the spawner.
    With the last spawner gone,there was a new area activated.

    I spawned my car,and followed the crowd.Our group of 10 entered a clearing with another 10 players.They were firing up at some 40 foot red maggot queen that was spewing evil looking giant flying bugs that could roll across the ground and send players flying.Plus large elite warrior hellbugs that would come out of the ground.

    I must admit I could not believe what I was seeing.And had to pinch myself that I was playing on xbox.

    When we finally destroyed all,the sky exploded in light.An empty reward screen came up[obviously rewards are disabled for beta].And just to top it all off 20 players all driving off in their own vehicle horde.Amazing,and will make me place an order.

    I knew nothing about it to,and have now placed a preorder with shopto after my first two sessions on xbox.I must admit I had lost some interest in firing the xbox up and instead playing on pc.But this has relit the fire.

    A good tip is to set waypoints on the map to reach your destination as what could look like a route could be impassable due to high hills.Oh and the map is huge,and this is only one playable area.

    Just downloading this now on the 360. Things seem to be pretty positive around here.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    It's a potentially fun game with friends. Yeah it's a bit ropey at the moment. Then when you are in a battle with bugs and about 5 quads and a few pick up trucks suddenly arrive and loads of random players jump out and help out is when it's fun.

    Massive lag in a battle with about 20 other players helping out.

    Love to see an EG gang roaming the map. Plenty of perks to unlock. Weapons to buy.special offers etc. each weapon class has its own xp levelling up. Even vehicles do as well

    There is 32 player TDM arenas, 4 player co op raids. Probably more in the final game

    On Xbox do have some problems logging in. Sometimes first attempt or I have to try a few times before connecting to the server

    At the moment some events restart as soon as you finish them. Plenty of random events around the map, protect soldiers, protect this vendor etc. sometimes as soon as you complete it another event may respawn in its place straight away



    Just did story mission, was on my own then 4 other players were on same mission as well turned up to help

    With 10 more days before release my guess this is an old build for our beta.Obviously the graphics are not going to melt your eyes,due to the nature of the game.But gameplay over graphics for this baby.

    Their twitter feed says they are working on xbox login issues.And this is probably my biggest worry,the servers as with any MP game.

    My little bite of the cherry has put a smile on my face and look forward to getting another go.Who knows what lies in wait in full retail?

    Yeah it is fun. Now the decision if Bioshock turns up in the post today do I play that ?:). Am enjoying myself with this game. Can see past the rough parts and enjoy myself in the game. Is on my preorder list now :)

    Like you said, its great when a convoy of players arrives out of nowhere to help out. Got myself a great 4 round burst LMG now

    Burst firing with an LMG is pretty deadly.Have a pistol that does more damage than any of the shotguns I have encountered.Even a grenade firing shotgun.:-P

    Looking forward to some crazy weapons in full release,elementals and modding them.

    It is nice to see a dev try something new and dangerous,and not the same ol' same ol on console.So for that I hope it succeeds.

    Great to hear it's fun. Shame it started early though as I could then have given it a go after all.

    I'll trust you folks good judgement though!

    The missions are quite fun to.Yes it all involves killing mutants.In MMO's I play/played,you don't even notice the missions as it is part of the grind.But I have been impressed by most of the ones I have done so far.

    And who could not love a Fawkes [Fallout 3]lookalike Super Mutant, with a flame rocket launcher trying to kill you.As loads of his friends jump out of a hovering aircraft behind him to come and kill you.

    @Vortex808

    Am interested in the difference between this beta and final game. If the servers are fine then we can have large EG convoy of quads roaming the game


    Even like the vehicle spawn. Buy a vehicle and select it in your Vehicle slot in the inventory. Just press up on d pad to spawn it. Very quick cool down for the vehicle spawn.

    My Google-fu has failed me. While I know cross platform play is out, how are accounts managed? Is it a single Trion account for everything or one per platform?

    It's one account sign in for them all, though I believe you can only link 1 console per account. So you can't link a PS3 and 360 to one account.

    Not 100% sure though, it's ages since I checked so this is old info.

    Think I might end up grabbing this, especially if it seems we might have a bit of an EG crew on the go.

    I did not look deeply but if you press LT on xbox while on inventory page, a wheel comes up,and one segment is social and another mp.Could be in one of those.

    Cheers for the reply, I only ask as it might be useful if it turns out one side is more populated than the other.

    @Puriel

    Did you try the right d pad whilst in game to bring up option to invite friends and party? Haven't tried it yet so not sure if it works in the beta

    It's called VOT plasma pulser. It is crazy. Just did a story mission and other 2 players just stood back, I just sprayed the whole area with gun.

    Also got weapon that drains enemies health and shields and can recharge shields and health of allies

    The worst part is getting damaged by the splash damage, so is fun pray and spraying but you can kill yourself in a very pretty explosion
